Distance Learning Guidelines for Students and Parents
WHAT Happens During Distance Learning?
● School buildings will be closed to all students. However, teachers will continue to plan and deliver regular learning experiences and assessments using MyCHCH, Zoom, and other online tools.
● Learning experiences will be delivered synchronously and asynchronously.
● Classes will meet virtually via Zoom 2 times/week for 50 minutes.
● Students should expect at least an additional 120 minutes of outside work in addition to the class time.
WHAT Students and Parents Can Expect?
● Teachers will plan learning activities and assessments to promote student mastery of all essential learning objectives for each course.
● All assignments will be posted Sunday night for the coming week.
● Synchronous course activities will happen as indicated in our new schedule. This schedule will be published by 3/23. We anticipate there will be some issues with synchronicity, at first, as everyone gains comfort with the technology.
● In addition, teachers will be available via email and/or Zoom during office hours, department times, and other times as arranged.
● Teachers will monitor student progress, write weekly progress notes and contact students, parents, advisors and program directors when needed.
WHAT is Expected of Students and Parents?
● Parents and students must have a wifi enabled device as well as internet connection in order to access distance learning.
● Students should plan to attend all synchronous class activities or contact their teacher to make alternative plans should differences in time zone or other issues make attendance impossible.
● Students are expected to complete all online readings, assigned learning activities, and assessments within the established time frame.
● Students and parents should use email to contact their teachers with questions. Teachers will communicate with all of their students and/or parents through email or via Zoom.
● Any student unable to meet distance learning expectations for any reason is expected to communicate directly with their program director for guidance and support.
